Good News!

on Wednesday, April 23

Hey Friends-
Thanks for all your prayers. I spoke with our doctor and Dana is here in the room waking up. The surgery was successful- and they were able to do the surgery laproscopically- which is a huge praise!! Dr. Nakamura showed me actual pictures of Dana's ovaries and where the cysts had been after the surgery. So far Dana is mildly coherent and very sleepy. Dr. Nak said we would be released later tonight.

The nurse just came in and said that doctors orders were that she can't take Ibuprofen for pain (because Advil is like a blood thinner) and Dana is allergic to narcotics- makes her throw up. So we are now trying to find a solution for her to take something for pain later today and when she gets home.

That's all for now. Thanks again for your prayers!
Shawn & Dana
